|This is a confidential report on Lovell from the Inspector of Prisons.
The report provides a concise but detailed account of Lovell's background
and his day-to-day life in prison. He works as a tailor, can 'read
well and write a little', eats gruel for breakfast, and bears his
imprisonment 'without any apparent bad effects'. Before becoming a
Chartist, Lovell was a Sunday school teacher. Under 'profession or
trade', he is described as a gardener.
